Echo

A piece about worried mothers, understanding shepherds and the difficulty of becoming a wolf.


In the week before Christmas, Lucas Derycke went to nor­thern Italy, pro­clai­med him­self a detec­tive and hired an assis­tant. Together they fol­lo­wed the trail of a wolf.

Based on this search, Lucas Derycke made ‹Echo›, a poe­tic and humo­rous account of an attemp­ted connec­tion bet­ween man and wolf.

A piece about wor­ried mothers, unders­tan­ding she­pherds and the dif­fi­cul­ty of beco­ming a wolf yourself.
